100% Wind Power Coming Jan. 1

Beginning Jan. 1, 2011, the College will purchase 100 percent of its energy from wind power through Community Energy. The purchase will offset 8,696 metric tons of carbon per year and will save the College $17,000 each year of its initial two-year contract.  Previously, the College purchased 15 percent of its energy from wind since signing the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment in 2007.
